— After a round of early morning showers, central North Carolin saw dropping temperatures on Wednesday.

Showers were over by mid-morning and the sun was out with clear skies by 10 a.m. in most places. 

“Temperatures are going to drop quickly and stay there the rest of the day,” WRAL meteorologist Elizabeth Gardner said.

Temperatures will drop into the 40s, and be even colder thanks to wind gusts of up to 30 mph.

Thursday looks to be chilly as well with a high expected in the low 50s and lows in the upper 20s. Friday will begin a warm up with highs near 60 and lows in the mid-30s.

The weekend looks to be much warmer with highs increasing from around 60 on Saturday to the mid to upper 60s on Sunday and Monday.

    Just a few years back 3-4 not sure,we had a week of mid to upper 70's in January. The apt complex i lived in here has an outdoor heated pool and you would have thought it was summer with all the folks hanging out. Its NC. Its winter which means its warm.
